Chemin de Fer Development

Tuesday, 5. February 2008

Blackjack is one of the most well-known games gambled on in casinos. Blackjack is also referred to as "twenty one" or Chemin de Fer. The game is a mix of chance and skills coupled with decision-making. The card game has evolved over a period of time. Players have specialized in specific abilities like "card counting," which allows them to turn the edge in the game in their direction. The card game has been in existence since the 1700s. References can be found in historical scriptures to a card game referred to as "vingt-et-un," which means twenty one in French, and is considered the precursor to black jack.

The game was initially not very well-liked in the US. This caused the gambling houses attempting a number of features like providing a bonus in case of a ten to one pay out, if the black jack player was dealt a "black" jack and an ace of spades. The jack could be either clubs or spades. After the game got popular, the reward pay out before long vanished from the rules.

Any hand which reaches a sum of twenty one is considered a winner. The total can not be in excess of twenty-one, if it does the hand is considered to be "bust." The aim of every player is to best the dealer. If the player and the croupier both have the same score, it’s called "push," with neither the black jack player nor the house winning the hand.
